Album: Port Royal (1988)
  • No more eagles gonna ride the wind
    Turning circles in the sky
    Badlands growing and the bison's gone
    Uaschitschun tell me why

    Why'd you kill my creed
    Claiming earth and wind
    You never kept your vow
    But you can't lock me in

    I'm riding free
    Riding free with the wind
    Free as an eagle
    Proud as a king

    My mother's the earth and my father's the wind
    You can't posses them, they are free
    It's time for you to see what you have done
    Can't hold my soul cause I will flee

    Why do you kill yourself
    Ravage what you need to live
    You can't eat your gold
    Natures calling you

    "Only when the last tree has been felt,
    the last fish caught,
    the last river poisoned,
    will you know, that men cannot eat money." Writer/s: ROLF KASPAREK
